"Filter" continues Castle Rock's slow burn, drawing viewers deeper into the terror of the unknown while building toward some shocking answers -- all without offering much in the way of movement in the overall plot.
The Kid has a strange affect on everyone who sees him, but what does that mean? I'm ready for some answers.
Filter doesn't quite emphasize on the stir from last episode, but it's a bridge to what I'm hoping will be ideally nefarious.
Though "Filter" concludes on a rather grim note... it's hard not to be utterly thrilled with the possibilities the revelations in this episode have opened up.
Filter, for better or worse, stands right on that precipice of providing answers and overpowering the rest of the show, like a bad ingredient in a recipe.
"Filter" does not offer any clarity but continues to advance the story forward in a terrifying manner.
When I first saw this episode, I misread the title as "Filler," and despite its explanations, that's what "Filter" feels like.
Well, that cliffhanger can go straight to hell, which is coincidentally what awaits the people who caged the Kid for all those years.
Castle Rock doesn't use a lot of music, but, when it does, it seems to throw in songs from other generations, adding to the temporal confusion.
In a "Castle Rock" cast that includes the charismatic old pros Scott Glenn and Sissy Spacek and the quirky scene-stealer Melanie Lynskey, it's easy to overlook how quietly excellent André Holland has been as Henry Deaver.
Castle Rock has just leveled up... This installment was the first time it felt like you could see the series as something closer to a cohesive whole.
